    A tad late in this discussion Frau, but that picture is amazing. It’s like a cross between a photograph and an oil painting. When you live in suburbia, views like this are priceless.

      I thought it was pretty good too.

      Maybe, just maybe, that’s because it is an “oil painting”, that is, a view which does not occur in nature but is (IMHO) computer enhanced.
      If you want a lovely picture. Wonderful.
      If you want a view of nature and real life, not so much.

        I do not object to taking artistic licence. All I want to show are nice pictures. I would even show paintings themselves if there were many of them.

        • AlanUK

          Yes. I understand that.
          Personally, I am not against what then becomes the artist’s impression of a view. (As you would have in a painting). It’s just not the same as the subtlety of real nature. I’ve seen (and I am sure you have too), so called photographs that are little more than tracing a picture and splashing garish colours on top.

          • Frau Katze

            I try to avoid garish colours.

            And you do a first class job.
            Thank you.
